Description

The course will start with an introduction to deafness aimed at becoming familiar with the audience. The specific requirements of subtitling for the deaf and hard-of-hearing (SDH) – textual, tone of voice, speaker identification, sound effects – will be highlighted. The conventions and norms in place will be discussed.

An insight into subtitling for deaf children will be presented and issues related to subtitling for young audiences will be discussed.

A state-of-the-art professional subtitling program, WinCAPS, will be used by the participants to carry out subtitling tasks on clips provided by the trainer. This practical part is aimed at introducing technical aspects of subtitling and at gaining an understanding of the potential offered by subtitling programs.

A list of useful websites and other sources of information will be given to all the participants.

By the end of the day you will be conversant with the main principles that regulate subtitling for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and will have had the opportunity to familiarise yourself with WinCAPS, an industry standard subtitling program.
